#9779 of 10143 Local Shell and Mobil back up
May 13, 2012 (7:19 am)
Both our Shell and Mobil stations kicked up to $4.39 this last week. They got as low as $4.29. I got 3 gallons of diesel for my Kubota, $4.69 per. Premium was $4.55 and midgrade $4.49. Premium seems to be the best bargain these days.

Got gas in CT for 3.999, PA 3.659, and IN 3.859(managed to pass by the first few stations that were 4.199).

and needed petrol for the truck. $3.70 for 87 octane at usual place. Funny, after driving the hybrid over there and come back here the truck felt to have a lot more power - but then after a couple days power level returned to normal.

Prices leaking down to $3.63 here... and as an added bonus, ethanol has disappeared from a couple of stations and my mixed driving MPG has jumped from 30-31 up to 33-34.
The nasty stuff did finally manage to kill the gaskets on my one lawnmower though.

Regular is down to $3.79 here. Not driving for the holiday, but it's unusual to see the pump price fall on the start of summer driving season.

Now of course I haven't bought any gas for over two months (as has been noted earlier) but when my wife went down to the Social Security office to try and straighten a few things out (they were closed due to a water leak; she's still steaming) I told her if she needed gas there was a cheap Sunoco just up the road. She took me up on that and reported $3.51 for regular.

Ours went down another two cents to $3.77. Naturally we aren't driving anywhere for the holiday, but I may just go fill up the Subaru for the summer.
I could get it down to $3.57 if I could find 4 nickel off grocery coupons. But I don't have that many left - gave my mother-in-law some a week ago. Don't need $200 worth of ribs for the weekend either; you get a penny off for every $10 spent.

Now at $3.75 for rug; $3.79 for diesel. Glad I waited on the Subie.
Was out of town today and filled up for $3.57. Diesel out of town was still high at $3.77.
